Here's what I think about the universe.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRiIWL04po8

Screw that big bang bs.

Can Mr. Tyson give any scientific evidence that the big bang actually occurred? He can't, and he's a scientist. So he cannot even use the most basic method his whole profession is based on- the scientific method to prove his beliefs are true. There is no physical evidence that it ever happened. He puts his faith in something just like Christians do. I'd rather put my faith in Jesus Christ and have eternal life than in a man-made theory such as the big bang.

Like I said, if I am to put my faith in something, I will take my chances and believe in Jesus.

It's ironic that a scientist can't prove their beliefs exist or even happened with what they believe in in the first place- science!

In the 'evolution vs creation' argument, why is it creationists only cite one book while the evolutionists have to cite hundreds? Just asking...

I'll just leave this here:

Quote:
Every scientific theory starts as a hypothesis. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a hypothesis is an idea that hasn't been proven yet. If enough evidence accumulates to support a hypothesis, it moves to the next step ó known as a theory ó in the scientific method and becomes accepted as a valid explanation of a phenomenon.
http://www.livescience.com/21491-wha...of-theory.html


Many times we confuse theory and hypothesis. It's important to know the difference if one is to debate the merits of a scientific theory.

Why do you have to dismiss the big bang as wrong in order to believe in your creator? It makes you look like a silly child plugging your ears to something you don't want to hear... The theories can go hand in hand, you know...

It's like looking at a pot of boiling water and asking "why is there water boiling?"

there's two explanations:

1) We know that Heat is a form of energy that is transferred by difference in temperature of regions. Here, it's just the amount of energy required by the H2O molecules in the liquid state to get converted to gaseous state. As we provide heat, it gets absorbed by water to get converted into water vapors.

Scientific

or:

2) Someone wanted to have a cup of tea.

Creation

Thus instead of rejecting the life's work of men and women that are way smarter than you over the course of human history, can't you just say both are right?
God created the universe and he used the big bang to do it?

Well done.

The answer is b/c in the small minds of people that refuse science the world is black or white. Which is strange b/c we know that God made many different colors...including grey.

Provide one ounce of proof for Creationism and you will change the world. We're listening.

Creationism doesn't hinge on having to be proved. That's the point. Big bang, evolution, etc exists on the premise of science and it can't be proved. That gives each one of us a choice in which one to believe in. I choose to believe in creation and God.

When I die, if I'm wrong about what I have believed in, so be it, I lose nothing! I will enter into a state of eternal darkness or whatever it is that happens.

However, when I die, if I'm right about what I believe in, I gain eternity in Heaven. And everyone who does not share that same belief will lose everything.

It's your choice. Unfortunately, some people think of themselves as too intelligent and will never embrace the thought of submitting to a higher power.

Evolution, however, has been proven, thus eliminating the need for Creationism as its commonly known.

Now I know your retort will be "Evolution has not been proven." Well, prove otherwise.
